Combine pineapple, red onion, tomatoes, jalapenos and cilantro in a large bowl.
Toss with lime juice.
Taste and add salt as desired.
Serve with tortilla chips for dipping. Pineapple salsa also makes a delicious topping for chicken, pork, tacos and more!
Use a fresh pineapple. Canned pineapple is going to end up mushy in your salsa, so you’ll need to know how to choose a pineapple, and get a good one. Some grocery stores cut out the work for you and sell pineapple pre-sliced. See my tips for choosing a ripe pineapple below.
Cut everything into similar sized pieces. The main ingredients of your pineapple salsa and pineapple and tomatoes, so they should be diced into small, easily dippable, bite-sized pieces. Secondary ingredients like jalapeno and onion and cilantro should likewise be finely chopped, but generally small than the tomatoes and pineapple. No one wants to bit into a huge chunk of jalapeno! or maybe they do…no judgement here.
Season well. A good salsa needs a generous amount of salt to help blend the flavors together. Make sure to add it in batches though. Sdd about a half of a teaspoon, stir it up, then do a taste test and go from their. Feel free to do as many taste tests as you need!
